Happy 47th Birthday 'Doctor Who'

On 23 November, 1963, the first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast. Entitled An Unearthly Child it starred William Hartnell as the Doctor and introduced the world to this mysterious traveller and his incredible time machine known as the TARDIS.

47 years later that battered blue box is still transporting the Time Lord and his companions to worlds of wonder and adventure. Long may their travels continue, and happy anniversary, Doctor!
Check out the BBC's Doctor Who site for all kinds of Doctor Who trivia like the initial pitch for the show circa 1963, a gallery of actors who were almost cast as The Doctor and lots more.
